NEWARK, Ohio (AP) – A central Ohio band director accused of inappropriate conduct with three students has pleaded not guilty to charges that include sexual battery.

Anthony Miller of Westerville filed a written not guilty plea Tuesday in Licking County.

Authorities say the charges against the 32-year-old Miller reflect his conduct with three females who were students at Newark High School. Miller is an assistant band director there and has been suspended without pay.

A message seeking comment was left Tuesday with Miller’s attorney, Brad Koffel. Koffel tells The Advocate in Newark his client is remorseful and is looking to come to a plea agreement with prosecutors.

The charges refer to conduct dating as far back as August 2010 and as recent as June 2013. Miller also is accused of disseminating inappropriate photographs.
